The Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (Majilis Ugama Islam Singapura) has released its annual official Islamic Calendar to be used in Singapore for the calendar year 2018, in particular for the determination of the dates of Singapore's 2 annual non-working public holidays based on the Hijra calendar.
The aforementioned annual announcement of the annual official Islamic Calendar to be used in Singapore (2016-07-23, 2015-03-22, 2014-08-17, 2013-07-29 and 2012-07-24), contrary to last year, comes before the announcement by Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) of the list of the official dates for Singapore's 2018 public holidays (2017-04-05).
Note that, contrary to the Deepavali Singapore non-working public holiday, which in past years was often incorrectly announced, initially, thus requiring a later erratum (2014-04-07, 2013-04-09, 2009-02-10, 2008-03-27, 2003-04-11, and 2002-03-04), the dates of the 2 annual Muslim public holidays in Singapore have never, in recent history (1998-03-29), been modified after the initial MOM announcement of the annual non-working public holidays in Singapore.
